This Survey only applies to Minnesota Homeowners.

Complete the questions below to pre-qualify for the “Field Study of an Intelligent, Networked, Retrofittable Water Heat Controller”.  If you pre-qualify, then you may proceed to the Site Information Worksheet linked at the bottom of the survey. 
The Site Information Worksheet is used to screen prospective sites regarding the type of water heater, water heater accessibility, internet access and accessibility, and water usage criteria, for potential participation in the “Field Study of an Intelligent, Networked, Retrofittable Water Heat Controller”. The first 50 qualified and approved sites will be contracted for project participation, in which an Aquanta unit will be installed at your home at no cost ($500-$800 value). 
 
Installations are scheduled by contractors, to take place in mid-2016.  A follow‐up visit may be made by GTI to validate the installation, and to set-up and calibrate the remote data collection equipment. 

Data collection begins immediately upon the unit being commissioned and will run through the remainder of 2016 and into 2017 (for 12 total months).  As part of the agreement, you will participate in 4-6 online surveys during the field test study.
